We just recently were reminiscing about one of our favorite days in nyc, about 20 years ago, which included Carol.
We had a lovely lunch at a French restaurant and then onto a broadway show with both Carol and Joe.
We had many laughs that day about life, but also wonderful insights into the important things in life...just like Carol, it was a beautiful experience.
Our condolences to all.

Even thou Carol was more of a friend of my parents (Richard & Jean Greene) I felt compelled to offer my condolences. I had been in her company many times through the years at different functions and so enjoyed our chats. She was always smiling and when I mentioned this to my Mom her reply was" that's Carol,
She has always been that way." This is the way I will remember her ,smiling and reminiscing about Lakewood. Again my deepest sympathy.
